Pies & Pints - Birmingham, AL

The day before Thanksgiving I came into town, and I mt my mom at this new spot that I was hearing people talk about Pies and Pints downtown Birmingham. I was excited about the prospect of good food and they did not dissapoint, well kind of. I ordered the chipotle chicken pizza and it was just ok. But my mom ordered the Classic, and I am so glad she doesn't eat much because it was absolutely delicious, and I ate her left overs, and a good deal of her pizza while were sitting there. That pizza was so good that  contemplated going back on Sunday for another helping an hopefully some for the road, but I digress. 

The atmosphere was modern with plenty of clean lines, and did I mention how great that "Classic" was. I was weary when I saw it had mushroom and banana peppers on it but the flavors have never complimente themselves o well that it created a glorious 6 part harmony in my mouth. 

Pros: nice dining space

Cons: Chipotle chicken pizza was nothing to write home about

Verdict: I will most certainly be back

 

DeVinci's - Homewood, AL

DeVinci's has been a staple in my life for the bulk of my life. I have watched football games there, and I have had awesome high school memories there. I even had a couple memorable date nights there. There isn't much on the menu that i wouldn't order, or haven't ordered for that matter. Earlier this week I went with my mom, and I ordered an En Fuego pizza for the first time ever, adn I think I have a new favorite item on the menu!!

DeVinci's is the type of restaurant you see on TV on almost all of the 90s sitcoms. its a familu owned italian restaurant, that people come to eat and relax. The place, just feels like home. Not only does it feel like home it tastes like home. This isn't some cheap tomato sauce, this is top notch italian food that you can taste the love in every single bite. 

Pros: Absolutely Delicious food

Cons: Small Space, sort of prolonged wait

Verdict: I'll be back! as I have for the last 20 or so years!
